As for Absolutely Free, I genuinely felt that it would qualify by most people. If it doesn't, no big deal - although I don't know what else it could be called.
I stated that Cosmic Tones was about space because - perhaps you were unaware - there was a rash of "spacey" music in the earlier '60s, ushered in by Telstar. Not sure if it qualifies as a genre in and of itself, but it was precursor to psychedelic music. There was nothing druggy about it, whereas psychedelic music is overtly about drugs. If this isn't sounding accurate to you... I don't know, go read a book about it or even just look at Wikipedia. It's pretty established stuff.
Not sure at all why you would say there is a similarity between myself and George with regard to these posts. I'm not making any qualitative judgments here. When lists are being made about favorite albums within a particular genre, the point is to find out what albums people like among a generally-understood batch. It only works if a fairly strict and common definition/understanding of the genre in play is used.
Inevitably, though - on every message board that has these threads - there is at least one person who likes to make the exercise more about him than the music, because that's just the type of person he is. The way in which he does that is by listing albums that are not generally understood to belong to the genre in question. He's hoping that at least someone takes the bait and questions the inclusions, but will be satisfied merely by leaving an impression of being more studied and erudite than the rest of the crowd, because he was able to find a connection between things that aren't normally considered connected.
So sure - let's fill up of top psychedelic albums of 1967 with jazz albums. Because why not?
